Welcome to Alan Cohen Executive Coaching

Before becoming a coach and founding Alan Cohen Executive Coaching, I was a public relations and marketing professional for more than 25 years, serving prominent clients in broadcasting, publishing and the Broadway theatre. I was drawn to the field by the prospect of using my creative talents to promote public appreciation of worthwhile projects and performers. I was more than pleased with the results.

I contributed to the success and popularity of such undertakings as the Harry Potter books and Emmy Award-winning television presentations. I was fulfilled beyond expectation and rewarded on so many levels. As my creative juices flowed, my work ethic thrived and my enthusiasm reached new heights. The challenge was to achieve my professional goals while maintaining a balanced perspective – and a balanced life. Not that I didn’t experience down-times — when too much was expected or demanded, when the workload seemed insurmountable, when clients or bosses didn’t “get” what I was proposing (or when client and I were out of sync).

But, even in the craziest of times, I regained my balance, finding ways to regularly put my feet back on firm ground, rejuvenate my creative energy and drive, and overcome the challenges of the day, months and years. And so can you… Because, as difficult as that seems, it can be done. I know from my own experience that it can, and I can show you how.

Let’s start here… Which of these reminds you of you?

  • (a)  a business owner or leader who wants to transform his or her business, and achieve greater fulfillment — and experience greater freedom
  • (b) a  leader who needs to increase the team’s performance, engagement and results (and who wants to have an easier time leading it), or
  • (c) the owner of any entrepreneurial endeavor who is concerned about where the next client, if any, will come from, and how to differentiate and distinguish his or her firm from others in the market.

Because all three want to maintain or regain an edge, enjoy more success and maintain greater balance, each one can profit from the services of an executive coach. Undoubtedly, so can you. If you’re in an environment where the prevailing philosophy is “What have you done for me lately?” it’s time to ask ,”What have you done for yourself lately?’ Alan Cohen Executive Coaching and Training” helps you rediscover YOUR way — and your WHY.

“I first met Alan a number of years ago when I heard him speak at an industry conference. I came away impressed with his insights, style and approach – so much so that when my senior leadership was facing some significant issues several years later, I brought Alan in to work with our team.

Through pre-meeting interviews and assessments, Alan was quickly able to discern the key issues and underlying factors.

In a subsequent two-day workshop, Alan used sensitivity, focus and well-honed facilitation skills to help our team successfully address the most pressing issues. The key outcome was an excellent path forward that carries through to this day and has made us a much stronger firm as a result.

I would enthusiastically recommend Alan to any organization that is looking for a highly-skilled and effective executive coach and facilitator.”
